HOW DID RAY LIOTTA AND MICHELLE GRACE MEET?

Grace and Liotta met while she was still married to Mark Grace. However, their romantic relationship did not begin quickly. Liotta once shared, as told by Hollywood Life:

“After she and Mark split up, she was looking for an acting coach. She was asked to do a rap video, and she called me up one day and said, ‘Should I do this video?’ And I said, ‘No, you should probably have dinner with me.’”

The couple tied the knot in 1997 and welcomed a child, Karsen Liotta, the following year. Their marriage sadly fell apart in 2004 when they divorced.

Even after their split, Liotta often praised his wife and they continued to co-parent together. “I had a relationship after I got divorced, and it didn't feel as equal as I would have liked,” Liotta said. “I was more vulnerable based on the experience I’d just been through.”

In the years that followed, the couple remained on good terms and even became subject to rumors that they had rekindled their romance.
